Alex Haidaris, MSTCM, L.Ac.

Alexandra ("Alex") Haidaris is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Oregon. She graduated from the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, California where she earned her Master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM). She is nationally board certified (NCCAOM) and has an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from San Francisco State University. After graduating, she continued her education in herbal medicine by studying traditionally used herbs while travelling in Siberia for 2 years.

Before becoming a practitioner, Alex was a patient receiving acupuncture and experienced great results. Her desire to help people, interest in health and herbalism, and her personal experiences with the effectiveness of TCM converged into a passion for sharing TCM with others. She particularly enjoys treating digestive issues, insomnia, and musculoskeletal complaints such as pain and arthritis, and loves to utilize cupping, tui na (massage), and lifestyle/dietary advice.

Alex has a nurturing and accepting approach, always truly meeting people where they are at. She enjoys learning about the diverse experiences of her patients, and hopes with everyone she meets to share with them the joy of living and healing naturally.

When not practicing, Alex enjoys hitting the trail, eating out at just about any cuisine, and experimenting with dishes at home. Otherwise, you might find her with her nose in a book!

From Alex's Patients:

Before going to Alex, I have had over 15 years of acupuncture and TCM experience. In the first visit, I immediately noted that Alex was very experienced and on point because my TCM doctor in China stimulated the exact same pressure points.

Alex is very caring and patient. After 3 months of treatment, my low blood pressure condition has improved. My upper pressure is now 3 digits vs 2 digits before the treatment.

Dee, the receptionist, is very friendly and detailed-minded. I enjoy my experience with them very much and I will keep visiting in the future. Keep up the great work, ladies!

I was having knee tightness and pain for months and my wife suggested me to try acupuncture. Alex's treatment eliminated the pain after several weeks. Now my knees are no longer sore and hurt after playing basketball. Highly recommended.

I’ve had acupuncture off and on for over two decades. The effectiveness of the treatments I receive from Alex have been the best I’ve had. I get them as part of my self care but also focus on specific areas of need when they come up. She has definitely helped me to continue a very active lifestyle of playing basketball and lifting weights into my 50s. I recently started massage therapy with Dea and she clearly has “the gift”…releases so much tension, it’s awesome. Lastly, G&L totally takes care of billing my insurance, which makes it incredibly easy…my favorite provider!

Being a Acupuncturist novice (one who hadn’t tested the waters), I found myself in a position that I would try anything. Having searing nerve pain in my lower neck I was looking for something or someone to help me. When a good friend mentioned G&L Acupuncture in Hillsboro, I called immediately. Alex (Alexandrea) fixed me right up after a couple of treatments I was pain free. I continue to be pain free three months later. Also the benefits of wellbeing followed after occasional treatment. I rate this office highest in professional service and positive outcome.

Alex is amazing and really listens to your concerns. She’s helped me immensely with headaches and menstrual symptoms.
